Rising 105 feet from its foundation to the very tip of the double spires, the Basilica remains to be an iconic figure amidst the urban backdrop of Quiapo, Manila today. The façade features multiple smaller spires while the interior walls are joined by intricately connected vaults which is true to its character of being the only Neo-Gothic Church in the country.
